According to a report by club insiders Claret & Hugh, GSB will ‘move heaven and earth‘ to seal the permanent signing of Jesse Lingard for West Ham United this summer – with the Irons keen to do a deal after his loan expiry.
West Ham set to prioritise Lingard permanent deal
Indeed, as per C&H, West Ham are very eager to make a permanent move happen at the end of the season – with manager David Moyes even listing it as a major priority in the summer window.
The 28-year-old, who has bagged four goals and one assist in six Premier League starts already since joining on a temporary deal in January (WhoScored), is at the centre of heavy interest over a permanent move according to this report.
Transfer Tavern take
The Englishman will have little sell-on value compared to that £20m price tag, but the club and GSB are still eager to do a deal with Moyes listing it as a major priority alongside potentially two new striker signings.
Receiving no shortage of plaudits since his rejuvenation at the London Stadium, pundit Alan Shearer hailed Lingard as a ‘magnificent signing‘ for West Ham.
Judging by this update, it appears the east Londoners are very keen to secure Lingard permanently – but time will tell what comes of the inside claim.
